Photoshoot from Lula magazine
This shoot really captures the mood of the migration theme. It’s all about serenity, innocence and a return to nature.

The melancholic atmosphere of her paintings illustrate the mood of the migration theme. The colours and textures in her work are also a great source of inspiration.

The bright colours and eerie mood of these illustrations lend themselves well to my take on the migration theme.

Mother in the 70’s
These are some photos of my mother who was brought up in Romania in the 1970’s.
The bohemian, folksy feel from the photos of my mother in the 70’s have made me consider a 70’s style silhouette.
Chloé in the 1970’s
The photos above led me to look at 70’s boho fashion and in particular Chloé when Karl Lagerfeld was at the helm.
